The Friends of Chelsea Community Hospital held their Annual General Meeting on Tuesday evening 9th November. See below for details of the many ways they have raised money and supported our school, and how you might be able to help too.

 Nicky Foy, the Chair of the Charity, and has been involved with the hospital School since it opened at Westminster Children’s Hospital 21 years ago, when her daughter was a patient there - a remark able commitment!

It is quite extraordinary that so many members of the Charity, (Ann, who is the treasurer, Trish, Helena, Melissa,  Sylvana and Sue) have been involved in fundraising for the school for such a long time.

Some of the Friends (Ann, Melissa and Helen) have been involved in running the charity stall on Tuesday’s at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital featuring the famous cake sale which draws in crowds from near and far. 

Trish and Sylvana are at present negotiating with the Royal Brompton Hospital so that they can also have a stall in the reception there once a week on the run up to Christmas.

Whole Foods have had CCHS as their Charity for October and November and this year they have a Christmas tree to support children in hospital – customers can take a decoration with a child’s age and buy a present for a child in hospital.

There will be a raffle at both hospitals before Christmas, so please if you have anything that is suitable for a raffle let us know.  Su will be organising this at C & W and Trish at Royal Brompton.

A May Ball at the Tabernacle in Notting Hill is being arranged for the 12th May – start sewing that taffeta and shake out the dancing shoes.  We will have a working party to organise this extravaganza  - Do I hear you volunteering to be part of this select group?  So far we have Phillip (our poet in residence) Shaun (our artist in residence) and Friend’s of CCHS Su and Claire.

There is a chance to both support CCHS and win a cash prize – by joining the 100 club - £10 a year is sufficient to be part of the prize draw.  See application form on this web site.

We would like to thank Daniel Crawford for kindly auditing the Charity accounts, and to Suet for all her hard work on the Charity.

The charity has provided support so that we can keep the school open for 50 weeks per year (we do close for 2 weeks at Christmas) – a youth Club on Rose Ward, education support on the adult ward at the Brompton. As well as our enriched arts programme, with art, poetry, storytelling and music – our ICT projects, trips and outings and a holiday at Sayers Croft.

Many thanks for all the support to all the members of the Charity and to all those who have supported to CCHS , best wishes to you all - Janette Steel, Head Teacher
